ACCRA, GHANA July 26, 2023 — Baitulmaal, a Dallas-based international humanitarian nonprofit, recently distributed fresh meat for 3,875 meals to impoverished families in Ghana as part of the Islamic season of Udhiyah.
Approximately 775 families living in Accra and the Ashanti region of Ghana were given fresh meat from locally-sourced and humanely-slaughtered cows.
The beneficiaries included orphan families and people living with disabilities, according to Elizabeth Sohail, program development manager at Baitulmaal.
“Many people in Ghana struggle to support their families,” said Sohail. “Thanks to our donors, these families were given the blessings of fresh meat for Eid.”
According to the World Food Programme, 24.2 percent of people in Ghana live below the national poverty line.
In addition to seasonal Islamic giving programs, Baitulmaal coordinates emergency aid efforts, water, hygiene and sanitation projects, orphan support programs and other humanitarian aid to under-served populations regardless of faith or nationality.
